I was wondering, Indesign automatically adds hyphens at the end of a line to join one part of the word with the next part (on the next line). Is there any way to get rid of this in my entire document so that indesign automatically puts the word on the next line rather than separating it with a hyphen? I've been going through it manually and correcting it but it's taking many hours.
Let me know if it's not clear what I'm saying

Ouch! What you need to do is turn "hyphenating" off. Select all your text and do it in the control panel like this:
You can also turn it off before you start in the paragraph panel, or by turning it off with no documents open make it off by default.
Thank you very much. Greatly appreciated Yip I wish I knew that beforehand arg!! hahaha. Still plenty helpful at this stage though. Cheers!
Love the illustration btw
You're obviously very new to InDesign so please allow me to make a couple of suggestions.
1. Buy Sandee Cohen's Visual Quick Start Guide: http://amzn.to/pe1DGO
2. Lynda.com is a great resource for video training. This link is good for one week trial: http://bit.ly/fcGpiI
Hope that helps,
Thanks Bob that's helpful
You are dead right! Lynda.com is like going to college for $25/month. The courses on Adobe products are stellar.
Now for my question. I use the hyphen on/off all the time for better spacing. However, when I turn hyphenation off, it leaves the hyphen where it has already placed it, thus I get dashes left within paragraphs. Am I doing something wrong, or is there a bug?
